WATCH: Roger Stone handcuffed and perp-walked after FBI raid in newly revealed footage

Published

on

The FBI raided Roger Stone’s Florida home in the wee hours of a January morning.

The moment was captured by CNN, staked outside the day following Mueller’s appearance in court. But it wasn’t CNN that scored an exclusive video of Stone being walked from the home by agents.

CBS12 News, an affiliate of the right-leaning Sinclair Broadcasting, obtained surveillance video from inside the FBI raid and Stone’s arrest.

The CNN video showed FBI agents banging loudly on the door announcing that they were the FBI. Yet, Stone said he was still shocked when he opened the door.

“I opened the door and in my front yard, I was staring down the barrel of two assault weapons and I saw a dozen other FBI agents in the background, all wearing night goggles, full SWAT gear, sidearms, and so-on. On the ground was a large metal device used to break down a door which was unnecessary,” Stone told Sinclair in an interview.

More agents came via boat behind Stone’s home.

Stone, known as a self-described “dirty trickster,” is accused of making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering.

Trump begs Louisiana for a ‘big win’ after his last-minute rally in Kentucky backfired

Published

At his last-ditch rally in Louisiana to help the struggling gubernatorial candidacy of GOP businessman Eddie Rispone, President Donald Trump boasted — incorrectly — that his rally in Kentucky narrowed the gap for Gov. Matt Bevin, who lost the race, by 19 points. He then begged voters to give Rispone a "big win."

"We elected everybody," said Trump. "The governor got brought up, in a few short days, 19 points. I went, we made a speech, the whole ticket was there, everybody won big. Governor's a really good guy. But 19 points is a big thing, and he lost by just a few thousand votes. And the headlines next day, Trump took a loss — I lifted him up a lot. But Trump took a loss. So you gotta give me a big win, please, okay? Okay?"

Republicans are treating voters like ‘children’ with their defense of Trump: Ex-presidential adviser

Published

On Thursday's edition of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," former presidential adviser David Gergen laid into Republican lawmakers for claiming that the impeachment probe is only based on "hearsay."

"The Republicans are treating us like idiots," said Gergen. "They just — they say you're only bringing forth hearsay. You don't have any firsthand information. We know there are three people who know exactly what happened. One is named [Rudy] Giuliani. One is chief of staff [Mick] Mulvaney and the third is [John] Bolton. And what's happened here? They all three have been called. The president said no, you must not talk. So the Republicans then come up and say, well, you only have hearsay."

Roger Stone’s health in question as prosecutors have him ‘dead to rights’: NBC reporter

Published

on

Jurors deciding the fate of longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone did not reach a verdict during their deliberations on Thursday and will reconvene on Friday morning.

But there were fascinating details from the courtroom revealed by NBC News correspondent Ken Dilanian.

"What about Roger Stone, does he look like he’s about to burn here?" MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews asked. "Does he look like he’s going down?"

"He does," Dilanian replied.

"And also, physically, he doesn't look well at this trial. He’s walking around the courthouse kind of unaccompanied, shambling around," he continued. "He doesn't look like a happy warrior, which is usually his persona."
